  • Drive carefully on the Rijeka bypass between Škurinje and Orehovica junctions because of a traffic accident in direction Zagreb. Traffic is intensified on city roads and on their bypasses, on the section of the DC8 Adriatic road Split-Omiš-Makarska, before Učka tunnel and on the road after the tunnel towards Matulji junction. Due to forest fire the DC27 state road is closed for traffic from the junction after the Šibenik bridge towards Benkovac. A1 MOTORWAY ZAGREB-SPLIT-PLOČE -Please drive carefully on the A1 motorway between Benkovac and Pirovac junctions due to reduced visibility from smoke.  Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan.

With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
